Meet some of our researchers
Finding the right treatment with precision pathology
Johan Hartman is developing new diagnostic methods for predicting therapeutic responses and judging relapse risk in cancer. The methods range from patient-derived three-dimensional tumour models to AI-aided risk assessment.
Biostatistician contributing to breast cancer epidemiology
Keith Humphreys develops and uses statistical methods for epidemiological research. He has a special interest in breast cancer risk assessment and in the studying the effectiveness of mammography screening.
Using AI to diagnose breast cancer at an earlier stage
Although mammography has dramatically reduced mortality rates for breast cancer, current technology still misses almost one third of cases. There is also a serious shortage of radiologists. Researchers believe that these problems can be solved by artificial intelligence (AI).
